Electronic collective La Fine Equipe
Rising French electronic collective and label owners, La Fine Equipe, are pleased to announce a brand new visual for ‘What Eva’ ft. Mr. J. Medeiros released through Nowadays. The band detail the video: “We wanted it to look like a 90s VHS that was put on the VCR. Part of the charm was its fuzzy, imperfect look so apparent during that era. ‘What Eva’ embodies a strong DIY ethos and we the band, did most of the filming ourselves using a small handheld camcorder. Everything was filmed on location in the supermarket. There are no 3D models. The song and visual is also a homage to the strong visual elements often found in 90s music videos like Mc Solaar’s ‘New Western’ and French hiphop outfit IAM’s ‘Je danse le Mia’. There is a surreal sequence in the video where we are surrounded by a kaleidoscopic display of supermarket products. To summarize, we had a complete blast filming this”.
La Fine Equipe are strongly influenced by hip-hop royalty like J Dilla, Mos Def and Madlib.
The four French beatmakers, Oogo, Chomsky, Mr, Gib and Blanka from (Marseille and Paris collectively continue their journey with a new album due in March 2019.
